Mercedes has taken the wraps off an utterly zany, track-only version of the AMG GT sports car. Called the AMG GT2, the newest race-spec Mercedes has a 4-litre V8 engine in its most powerful state of tune and various modifications to bring it up to competitive racing spec. The track-only car will be available to well-heeled racing enthusiasts from 2023.
AMG GT2 is a kitted-out race car
The AMG GT2 has been extensively modified according to FIA standards. It has a carbon-fibre and aluminium space-frame construction, a clean and minimalist overall design, lightly modified bumper, subtle splitter and bonnet scoop and a large rear spoiler.
Mercedes touts safety as its top priority when it comes to making the track car and has thus given it features such as a six-point seat belt, safety nets, carbon fuel tank and emergency measures including a roof hatch for extrication and a powerful fire extinguishing system. It also has a steel roll cage, while electronic aids such as adjustable ESC and racing ABS will come in handy if a hairy moment occurs on track.
Powerful V8 under the bonnet
The AMG GT2 is powered by a 4-litre, twin-turbo V8 engine that’s dialled all the way up to 707PS and 800Nm and paired with a six-speed sequential racing gearbox. That’s a lot of power for a car that weighs less than 1,400kg.
Moreover, the AMG GT2 has adjustable racing suspension, powerful brakes with six-piston calipers and massive 325-section racing slicks.
The AMG GT2 is aimed at Mercedes owners and racing enthusiasts and even professional racers looking to get some track time in their own vehicles. You can experience this beast from 2023 onwards.
